When we set up the auto-wallet funding feature on VTpass, our aim was to make wallet funding super easy. And we did.
However, recent development has made virtual wallet funding difficult; starting with Providus bank discontinuing support for virtual accounts to subsequent deactivation of automatic wallet funding.
While we are currently working to restore auto-wallet funding by assigning new virtual accounts to our customers, we have reactivated manual wallet funding as an alternative to serve you within this period.
How to fund your VTpass wallet manually
To fund your VTpass wallet manually, simply make payment into any of the following bank accounts:
Stanbic IBTC Bank Broadshift Technologies Ltd 0034565819
Providus Bank Broadshift Technologies Ltd 5400381948
After you have made payment, use the payment notification page to alert us of your payment. Here’s how to do so:
Login to your VTpass account using your username and password
Navigate to and click on “Quick Tools”
Click on “Payment Notification”
Fill the simple payment notification form
Once sent, VTpass would be notified of your payment and upon confirmation, your payment would reflect on your wallet.
New virtual account numbers would be resigned to account holders upon restoration of the auto-wallet funding service.

Back in the days when we needed little internet activity, you could use your birthday or mom’s address as a password; that was perfectly acceptable. There was no need to create strong passwords or use many of the techniques available today.
Nowadays, with our ever-expanding reliance on the internet for quite a number of things; the best password is one that’s hard to crack and easy to remember.
To protect your online accounts from cybercrimes; here are a few tricks you can use to create strong passwords that are easy to remember:
1. Use initials of a phrase or statement familiar to you
Assuming you have a phrase that always pops up in your head every now and then; for example, “It is what it is”, a password can be IiWiI or iiWII, etc, using the initials of the phrase. However, you might want to add special characters or numbers to strengthen it. No, don’t use your birthday. Instead think of a favorite number or any combination you can easily remember: IIWii%8#, perfect!
2. Rearrange a famous name or familiar word
So you’re a big fan of Lionel Messi or Wizkid or the word “Business” just makes sense to you; why not rearrange these words, say issemlenoil or ssenisub? Even at that, your password is not strong enough, you can apply toggle letters, special characters, and numbers. For example, Business becomes 33eN!sUb and Wizkid becomes K!83iW
3. Use end letters of a favorite song, phrase or whatever
This is similar to our first technique, but this time you’re making use of end-letters. If you love Beyonce’s “Who run the world – Girls!”, nothing stops you from making sdeno! your password. As always, include numbers, special characters, or any other combination. Check this out: on3DsWr7wG100%. I just used end letters plus initials to create that password. A hacker is going to have a real hard time cracking that!
4. Attach different end codes to one password
If you love keeping it simple and can only deal with one password at a time; then we recommend attaching different codes to the end of your password for different online accounts. This is pretty easy to do. Using K!83iW as an example, you can use K!83iWfB for Facebook; K!83iWgM for your Gmail; K!83iWtW for Twitter, etc. Always ensure the combinations are easy to remember but difficult to guess.
5. Use a Password Manger
A Password Manager is an application that stores all your passwords in one place. There are several password managers out there; some perform the sole function of storing your passwords while others equally generate strong passwords when you need them.
If you install a Password Manager on your computer or phone, all you need do is create a master or base password (using any of the techniques above) which would secure the Password Manager; the password manager takes care of generating or storing subsequent passwords you use.
When it comes to top account security, the ultimate advice is to regularly update your passwords at calculated intervals. This is usually the hardest part. Here are a few techniques for updating your password:
Update only your master password (this is easier if you are using a password manager)
Update all your passwords by changing a letter or character or changing their positions
Add the current date of the change to passwords when updating
We hope this helps someone out there get better at creating passwords. Be sure to apply some of these when creating your VTpass password. If you’ve lost or forgotten your VTpass password, learn how to retrieve it right away.

So you mistakenly lost your VTpass password and want to recover it? No shame in that, it happens even to the best of us. The tiny little digits that keep many of our digital activities safe are pretty easy to lose or forget. It’s worst when you use numerous passwords online.
Passwords can be annoying but we can’t do without them. One must simply learn how to keep them safe and how to recall them easily when needed. No one wants a hacker on their trail, that can be scary.
That’s why at VTpass, we made it exceptionally easy for you to get a new password when you forget or lose your current one. Before we dive right into that, you should take a look at 3 simple ways to keep, and never lose or forget, your passwords:
Ok, this may seem like a lot of work, but trust us it works. If you have a hard time remembering all your passwords, simply writing them down in a small jotter you always carry with you, or neatly saving them in your phone’s using a Notes app, can go a long way.
We recommend a Notes app simply because it is easier to copy and paste and accessible at any time.
2. Use Password Managers
Tech has made life easy, and when it comes to passwords, even easier! If you don’t like the idea of noting your passwords, simply make use of a password manager. Password managers are applications that allow you to stores passwords and retrieve them at any time, just like Google Password Manager.
All you have to do is create a master password only you can remember as your password to your password manager. Whenever you create an account doing any online activity, simply store your login details in your password manager. You can download a password management app from Google PlayStore or AppStore.
3. Re-use passwords on similar web activities
Yes, we agree that it is wrong to use a password more than once, but it’s actually easier to remember a password is you are using it to secure two or three online accounts that are related. We are talking about using one password for your emails (maximum of three), one password for your social media accounts (max of three), etc.
When you use one password on related web activities, it is easier to remember. However, never use a password for more than three related web accounts. When it comes to online payments, banking, and wallets, etc, never reuse a password!
So what do you do when you lose or forget your VTpass password? The answer is to simply reset your password! That easy. You cannot retrieve a lost or forgotten VTpass password, but you can always reset it to a password you can remember.
To reset your VTpass password, follow these steps;
A new password will be sent to you via mail and SMS with instructions on resetting your password. Follow the instruction in the mail or SMS sent to you to successfully reset your password. We advise you change the password to the one you can easily remember after you login.
